FFI has released a report and action plan calling for the Domestic and Sexual Violence field to reclaim its social justice roots, critically examine how it responds to the reality of DV/SA survivors’ lives (especially when the violence is not the only challenge being faced) and move forward in new ways to ensure that survivors, their families, and their communities are part of efforts and services that recognize their assets and strengths. This report draws heavily upon the work and perspectives of the members of FFI’s newly launched DSV Cohort Demonstration Project, and is informed by FFI’s statewide project in CA examining how survivors and other stakeholders define survivor success. It discusses the current “state of the field”; outlines the Cohort’s action plan; and includes a summary of the initial summit of the national DSV Cohort and allies Atlanta in December 2013. The DSV Cohort recently reconvened in Indianapolis for two-days, to start moving on the action plan. For more information, please contact Anna Melbin.
